Risks and challenges

SOUL MEN #1 is done... As a matter of fact issues one, two, three, four and five of SOUL MEN are all done and ready for the world! But here is the rub, while we are a writer and artist duo, we are also business men. Being business men, we do understand that this venture does have its risks and here they are...

RISKS ARE WORTH REWARDS!
The RISK we know we can't avoid is wanting the world to see our book! Putting SOUL MEN #1 on Kickstarter rather than releasing the book through a traditional publisher. While we may not have the logo of a big creator-owned publisher on our cover, SOUL MEN #1 still has the "big time" feel, professional creators busting their butts and quality art that will shine through each and every panel. We wanted to guarantee that SOUL MEN would get the start it deserves and that is why we are doing this Kickstarter campaign.

There is no risk with the creation of the script or art because it is completely done and ready to print. And as far as printing goes, we are in contact with our printer and are ready to send off the print files as soon as we are backed.

As for the second RISK, we believe the ONLY CHALLENGE that stands before us is marketing and promotion of the Kickstarter for SOUL MEN #1. Again, we do not have the advantage of being with a publisher who will market the book. But this challenge WILL BE overcame because are dedicated to the success of SOUL MEN as a series, not just this first issue. We have done a lot of pre-launch marketing including a landing page at http://soulmen.launchrock.com, we have been guests on various podcasts, and comic book news websites have been kind enough to write previews and publish our press release.

As you can see, we did all we can. Now, we just need to keep spreading the word until we hit the very last stretch goal!
